DS4 controller input lag?
Hello. I know this question gets asked routinely, but couldn’t find a fix yet. I started playing Star Ocean Second Evolution recently and finally got it to run smooth, but the input lag is pretty noticeable. Just using keyboard keys, it’s about 4-5 frames of input lag, which is manageable, but with my PS4 controller it jumps up to about 7-8 frames. I’m guessing the extra frames are inherent from using 3rd party drivers for a console controller. I’m using stand alone as the latency tools in retroarch didn’t work. Here’s my info:

Lenovo Laptop win10 with i7 and GTX 2060, using input mapper (SCP toolkit kept disabling my KB)

Tried both wired and Bluetooth connection for the controller, no major difference.

V sync off helps a bit, but only with
OpenGL and tearing is bad.

Tried different back ends.
Frame skipping auto

Alll settings under performance are checked except v sync and retain textures

Upscale: auto
Type: XBRZ
Anioscopic filter 4x

Frame rate is smooth 60

Any fixes yet or is it just something inherent with the software? Is there a previous build that runs better?

This is more of a problem with Bluetooth in general rather than emulators. Try downloading DS4 lag repair for PS4 by Hugo MB. Try and you should be happy!

Input Delay ds4windows. In DS4Windows case, we refer to the time it takes for the system/DS4Windows to communicate with the controller. A high latency means a high input delay in games, meaning the time it takes for your character to respond to the controller commands. official website
